    My first attempt at driving was in a Maruti Omni. Later fine tuned in a driving school M800 in 2002 :)

    I learned driving in Matiz, In fact 3 different Matiz :)

    My Friend had a Matiz SS, and my cousin had Matiz SD. I used to chance my hand at both the Matiz, by telling that I knew Driving and have driven the other Person's Matiz :p.
    This would give them confidence that I could handle their car. and would let me drive. This continued for for 6-7 times. and then I Got myself a used Matiz SG in 2007 in which I perfected my drviing skills.

    I learned in a 1960 model FIAT Premier Padmini.....:D with steering mounted gear shift.

    Later I took the same car on a long drive from Cochin to Guruvayoor on a rainy day... On the way back, it was showing problems in braking :eek:, still I managed to reach home safely.. it was a great learning experiance

  9. Maruti 800, i brought it with out knowing how to drive, initially my dad drove it around, later one of my friend taught me the first lesson.
    I used only drive in the night for the fear of car stalling in midst of traffic!! but bangalore dis not have so many taxis playing on the road in 98-99. Later brought a Zen in 2003 and Wagon R in 2006. So Punto is my fourth car.

    Initially it was on a Willys Jeep. Then a Mahindra (don't remember the model) then MM540 (That's why I like Mahindra Thar very much).
    This was during my school days, I had to stand on the clutch and brake to operate it and use truck style driving to steer. These were my dad's department vehicles. :p
    Also had the luxury of practicing on a white amby with red beacon; freedom from police checking. :cool:
    Went to a driving school there they had a Mark 3 Ambassador and a Trekker. Trekker is a wonderful vehicle very easy to control and learn.
    We had a Premier Padmini at that time, however my elder brother never allowed me to drive that. :(
